Steve is a writer and designer with over 20 years of game development knowledge

"I craft stories, write and refine dialogue and develop interactive narrative that add value and player connectivity to character-driven games."

In all branches of interactive media, the growing significance of
story and character means that finding an experienced writer with a proven track record can be vital to the success of your project.

The role of the writer is so much more than creating dialogue or putting text on screen

From the development of new IP to the fleshing out of existing ideas to the creation of rich characters and believable dialogue, Steve will enrich your game by ensuring that the story he helps you tell matches your unique vision.
